Islamabad (Agencies): The first meeting of Pakistan and Afghanistan joint working groups is being held in Kabul today (Saturday).

According to Radio Pakistan, Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua led the Pakistani delegation had proposed five joint working groups, which focus on ensuring comprehensive engagement for countering terrorism, intelligence sharing, military, economy, trade and transit interaction, refugee repatriation and connectivity.

The Foreign Secretary has explained that instead of blame game both sides should engage in concrete cooperation. Pakistan has offered joint investigation into the terrorist attacks. The Foreign Secretary addressing the Afghanistan Pakistan Action Plan for Solidarity (APAPS) has condemned the Kabul terrorist attack as well.

Foreign office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal has said that Pakistan has always maintained that there is no military path to peace and stability in Afghanistan and only an Afghan led and Afghan owned peace process will ensure peace there.

He said the endless cycle of violence in Afghanistan for decades has and will only add to the woes of people of that country including the Afghan refugees in Pakistan who will not be able to return to their homes and reunite with their beloved ones.
